If you are studying communication at the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin, you may very well qualify for financial assistance as you work toward your degree. The Moody College of Communication gives out around 200 scholarships to students every year for a total of $600,000. If you fill out the simple online application, you will be considered for all of the college’s scholarships.
To apply, you will need to fill out the free FAFSA form to prove your financial need. You will need to have a reasonably high GPA (the GPA requirement may vary from one scholarship to another), and generally take a full load of coursework (though this requirement may also vary). Most scholarships are available for the fall and spring semesters, but summer scholarships are also offered by the college. Scholarships are available for students pursuing journalism, radio, TV, or film, so long as they are enrolled in the Moody College of Communication and have declared communication as their major. Several study abroad scholarships are also available. This is an amazing opportunity and a very easy way to apply for dozens of scholarships at once! So if you are attending the University of Texas, don’t miss out!
